suleiman has said unequivocally that the president will not step down. president obama said he must stay in office in order to steer changes through. it appears that president mubarak is going to stay. what happens next? >> well, fareed, i think this is onlyi i continuing the sta continuing the stand-off. i think the people are very clear that mubarak has to retire, in dignity but he has to go. there's a huge question of credibility. people have no credibility, if he doesn't leave, the regime would retrench and then come back with vengeance. and you hear different voices. very clear he should go. frank wisner came with this statement saying that mubarak must stay which created a lot of confusion, lot of disappointment, i should say to you here in egypt. people who are very happy with barack obama's statement that the time is now. mubarak will be stubborn but it's not really a person of issue, it's an issue of the country. people want to see a new regime and mubarak to step down is a clear indication that we are on the throes of the second republic, if you like. unless he does that, we wi

or is that not fair? >> i'm not a big fan of the obama administration, but i was marginally involved in discussions during the presidency of george w. bush about egypt, because they wanted to push egypt toward reform and nudge hosni mubarak toward reform. they were very concerned about the ways of hosni mubarak. and in the end, they pulled back from it. so i think there's plenty of blame to go around. this is a man who has been in power from reagan to obama. he's known five presidents, and he's picked the pocket and stiffed five presidents in a row. this kind of guessing who lost egypt and who should have known, i am really not interested in it. i wrote a lot about egypt trying to underline the troubles of the mubarak regime. it's really not about this debate in washington. it's really about this revolution in egypt and whether we go and embrace it and proclaim it and accept it as a legitimate revolution that a free people are entitled to. >> david, given the history with egypt, the american support of the mubarak regime for 30 years, how in your opinion have they been playing this, mixed messages
